Kickstarter: Fairy Quest

You don't usually find that many stories or original value and intrigue mixed in with amazing art. Going through some of Kickstarter's many different projects, I stumbled upon "Fairy Quest" by Paul Jenkins. It's an amazingly and I'm assuming painstakingly 48 page fully illustrated fictional tale. Starting at $14, you can have the huge PDF file and read it through on your iPad or iPhone or what have you. For only $30, you can have a "beautiful, hardbound, shrink-wrapped copy of Fairy Quest 1 – Outlaws by Paul Jenkins, Humberto Ramos and featuring gorgeous color and design work by our old pal and collaborator, Leonardo Olea!" That's the winner. If you want to up your pledge, get a signed copy for $60! (unfortunately the $40 signed edition is already pledged out and I am still trying to find out the difference between the two save for the personal message)

Kickstart it already! As you know, we did!

With the release of Walter Issacson's "Steve Jobs" biography last fall, Steve's legendary passion and style of management came to life.  Stories came unfolded and many people from within the industry shared their intimate Steve Jobs' stories.  Tomorrow, we have a first hand "fly on the wall" story by Ken Segall.

Spread throughout Ken Segall's new book, Insanely Simple: The Obsession That Drives Apple's Success, he shares his personal experiences dealing and working with the late Steve Jobs.  He details an exciting roller coaster whilst maintaining that is was the mantra of simplicity that stood prime for Apple's success.  Playing a prominent roll as ad agency creative director, he delivered one of Apple's most memorable campaigns specifically "Think Different" and help create the "intelligent" moniker that is present in most of Apple's current offerings.
